Angel Heart (1987)
Angel Heart (Not to be confused with the 2005 Anime Angel Heart) is a 1987 neo-noir psychological horror film directed by Alan Parker (Midnight Express, Mississippi Burning) and starring Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro. The film follows a private detective hired to track down a missing singer, known as "Johnny Favorite," in the early 1950s. The film is an adaption of William Hjortsberg's 1978 novel Falling Angel, and is known for its controversial casting of Lisa Bonet (whose character has a graphic sex scene in the film), who was famous for her role on The Cosby Show.
The following weapons were used in the film Angel Heart (1987):
Smith & Wesson Model 38
Harry Angel's (Mickey Rourke) personal firearm throughout the film is a snubnosed Smith & Wesson Model 38 revolver. While it is not technically an anachronism, the film takes place in 1955, the same year the Model 38 was released. It's unlikely, but not impossible, that a lowly Brooklyn private detective such as Angel would have a brand new gun such as this.
Enfield No. 2
When Angel investigates the home of Doctor Fowler (Michael Higgins), he finds an Enfield No. 2 revolver in a dresser drawer. He finds it unloaded, but later finds that Doctor Fowler kept the ammunition in a hollowed-out bible.
Unknown Colt Revolver
One of the men working for Ethan Krusemark (Stocker Fontelieu) fires what appears to be a long-barreled Colt revolver at Angel. It's seen only briefly and the shots are too blurry to accurately identify it.
Colt Government Model
During the first few minutes of the film, a 1911 variant can be seen in Angel's desk. Based on the manufacturing proofs, this appears to be an early Colt Government Model at first glance, but upon closer inspection it appears that the proofs are on the wrong side of the gun. The large capital-lettered COLT can be seen on early Government Colts, but are on the right side (in relation to someone holding the pistol) of the slide. The gun in the film has the large COLT on the left side of the slide.
